As the line between music and art continues to blur, a new book invites you to discover the evolution of that artistic marriage through a collection of album covers.

Taschen is set to launch a new book titled Art Record Covers, a comprehensive showcase of album covers that explores the growing intrinsic relationship between music and visual arts particularly since the rise of modernism and pop art. Compiled by Francesco Spampinato, the book features over 50o of the most significant covers of the last 60-70 years, complete with details that include artist, album name, year as well as a summary of the cover art.
